I am an Associate professor at the Faculty of Education at the University of Novi Sad and a postdoctoral fellow at UGent in group for Analysis and PDE’s. I received PhD degree in mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics at University of Vienna. My main research interest is mathematical analysis of intego-differential and partial differential equations, where equations arose from mechanics.
